"I took these to a potluck and several people commented they were the best brownies they've ever had. As a bonus, it's such an easy recipe there's no need to buy brownie mixes anymore."

"Found this recipe years ago and been making these for years. They are the best for sure!"

MY REVIEW

"The flavor of the brownies is very good. They are chewy, but a little crumbly (which isn't ideal). What makes these brownies is that they are totally full of walnuts. Yum! Half the people reviewing didn't even use walnuts/nuts. Unless you're allergic to them or REALLY don't like walnuts, that is a big mistake.

Like one reviewer I halved he recipe, but baked for the same amount of time. I didn't want 24 brownies around my house. 12 is enough. I ate 2 at a time since the serving is quite small. When they're gone. They're gone.
I used 50% sugar 50% granulated sucralose to cut down on the sugar carbs. It definitely didn't affect the flavor. Perhaps that might have caused the crumbliness. I'd still rather have them a little crumbly than eat that much sugar. [I need to watch my glucose level.]"

"These are the absolute best brownies!!! I left out the nuts though. I did them by hand. I mixed the oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla together really well with a whisk (to break up clumps) 1st. Then whisked the cocoa (rounded 3/4 c.) in. The stirred in the rest of the dry,... I was very careful not to incorporate air in to the batter, as I hate cake-like brownies. Also, I used 1c. white flour and 1/3 whole wheat flour,.. you could not tell at all, next time I may try it with even more whole wheat flour.

It took 23 minutes in my preheated oven in a glass 13x9.
These were the perfect amount of sweet!
I use a combination of black cocoa with a little regular.
They were perfectly fudgy, but competely done! I have never found this perfect combination till now!!! I am going to copies of this, so I never lose it! :o)"

"Apparently I did something wrong, as these brownies were dry and not as sweet as others I've baked. My oven was not off temp, as I have two oven thermometers inside to double check it. It was a quick and easy preparation, but I was disappointed in the results, given all the great reviews. I'll choose the box when I'm rushed next time."
